During our visit to Pixar Animation’s campus in Emeryville, California to check out a bunch of footage from Cars 3 (read our reaction over here), the animation studio also took the time to show us their new short film that will be attached to the sequel when it hits theaters this summer.
In case you missed the first look Lou we featured previously, the story focuses on a monster who lives in a lost and found box at an elementary school. What’s cool about Lou, is that he’s actually made up of all the things found in that lost and found box. There’s a red hoodie, baseballs, buttons, a slinky, a handheld video game, a shoe and plenty of other misplaced items from the kids at the school.
After all the kids are done having recess on the school playground, Lou takes it upon himself to scour the playground for all the items that get left behind, and he secretly gives them back to the kids to enjoy over and over again. But one day, he notices a bully who has been stealing stuff from his classmates, and what happens next is hilarious and moving.

Of the 16 theatrical Pixar shorts released thus far, four have won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, while another eight films have been nominated. The short films are often as good as the features they accompany, which is why we are always excited to see what’s next.
Pixar will present their next animated short, Lou, in front of Cars 3 this summer. Disney has released an official poster to tease the short, which is about a monster who lives in a Lost and Found box. Check out the Lou poster below!

It’s not like Pixar needs to try that hard to convince people to go and see their features, but it’s always nice when they sweeten the deal with an accompanying short film. A few months ago we got our first little peek at Lou, the new six-minute short directed by Dave Mullins and Dana Murray. Today we’re getting even closer with the mysterious monster of the title, who’ll make his way to theaters ahead of Cars 3.
Feast your eyes on a Lou first look photo below, and get many more details about what exactly this movie is.
